I want to enjoy these kind of games but I always get bored, what’s the appeal? Well admittedly they also make me anxious because they make me think about how my life is in shambles and I’m playing a virtual life instead

 No.55738

I like to play as succubus Sims and do lewd things but like >>55737 said once that thought creeps in my head i get depressed and quit. Playing a lot of life sims as a kid has also played a part in burning me out of the genre. But when you get really invested into a save they can be extremely entertaining games.

For me, especially for sims 2 is the autonomy. What you want differs from what your sims want. It is quite basic and I wish they improved on this on sims 3 and 4 but they feel more like dollhouses.
Sims 2 with some autonomous mods really make it feel like you are controlling different characters. The sandboxy nature demands you to create goals on your own but for example, lets say you want to build a farm but your sims is lazy and wants to have romances. Or you try to get something else done only to find out the your teen son is getting into fights with the son of your family friend. Stories write themselves.

so I played for a little while and it's not too bad, might be better with a mate but how could I know
I almost dropped it when I found out it's one of these games where you can wander around the map forever and find no one and suddenly you get shot down by some asshole with an overpowered scoped rifle. there's a pve element here but honestly the enemies don't feel threatening at all, and the bosses you have to track down and kill are little more than hp sponges just aimlessly wandering around some house, barn or whatever. I get that it's mainly a pvp game but the enemies are such pushovers it's disappointing.

I tried Halo, it was OK. tbh I'm new to FPS and not so good at em. In Halo I have a tough time taking down bots, even with infinite ammo and health.

I'm glad there is a bot mode to practice and improve on, especially in a free game.

I just dont feel much motivation to invest the energy and time in improving. I guess I do kinda care about the setting of FPS. Be it historic or near future. I like to roleplay my own scenarios, from my own knowledge of history and alternate history fantasies. And when its just generic scifi goons battling each other, it doesn't mean much to me. Even Star Wars I have at least some attachment to. But I know nothing of Halo lore. I remember all the cool kids in high school used to love it.

The whole blowup over BF2042, made me want to a play a scifi BF with mass battles with bots. So I went back to BF2. Maybe I'm really stupid or just influenced by the Star Wars films. But I played 20 hours of BF2 in the past without realizing that the blaster guns were automatic. So I was firing shot by shot. A huge disadvantage.

So I switched to 1st person mode, and started firing automatically and am having a lot of fun.

Back when I was a teenager I thought that I would be a PC gamer forever, because PC gaming was superior in my mind, probably had a little to do with 4chan memes too. But I am starting to change opinion, a console is looking more and more attractive now that I'm older. I don't really care about hardware anymore, it feels like things move so fast now, I don't even know what the newest hardware is and whatever it is it is way too expensive. I just wanna lounge on a couch and play games with a controller and not worry about hardware specs or compatibility or whatever, just have fun.

So the thing is, I don't know anything about console gaming, haven't owned one since the ps2. Is there anything I should know? What sort of gamers does each console cater to? What does each console offer? How long are console's life-spans these days? Is it too late to get in on the current gen? I would like anyone to describe their joys with console gaming.

Nebuchadnezzar. Man this game caught me by surprise. Just found out about this title 2 days ago. It has been consuming my life like no other game in a very long time. I'm a fan of the old city building managers like Caesar and Cleopatra but this one really hit it for me. Starting with the setting. Ancient Mesopotamia is one of those historical periods I was always fascinated by but for whatever reason never actually got in the right frame of mind to really sit down and read about it more closely. Nebuchadnezzar is divided by campaigns where you manage important Mesopotamian cities, from the neolithic and early bronze age, all the way to late iron age and classical antiquity. From Sumerians to Neo-Babylonians.

If you have played some city management games before this, it will be familiar to you but there are some very charming things about Nebuchadnezzar that I quite enjoy it and makes it perhaps my favorite of the bunch. I think the most interesting thing about the gameplay is how insidious failure is. You make a mistake but it won't be obvious at all until your city starts to fall apart, very slowly at first and then a sudden collapse if you neglect to realize it in time. There's a fair amount of micromanagement here which makes your mistakes harder to notice. You are just busy doing something else, without realizing a crisis is coming your way. This aspect alone fascinates me but there's a lot more to it than that.

Now, I've never ran an ancient, craddle of civilization city in real life before but I imagine this game does a good job simulating that in some areas. For example the constant fight for adequate space. It's no coincidence all ancient civilizations began near a river. It's amazing what a logistical nightmare Nebuchadnezzar can become because of the location of a river. If you're not very careful with how you plan things out, you'll waste that very, very precious valley space and your entire city will be churning in pain as you try to avoid your citizens to run out of bread. There's a very satisfying learning curve here where each catastrophic failure will teach you very valuable lessons.

Speaking of failure, this game doesn't pull any punches. It's quite hard if you compare to most games these gays, even on normal setting. Just learning how everything works is not enough. It will also test your patience in a good way. The objectives for each campaign really test how well your city is running. One of the common goalPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

It’s good that you’re going through the regions completely before moving on. It’s more enjoyable that way. I went ping-ponging around to get all the towers and then it just felt like grinding and got boring.

I've been playing Bomber Crew recently. I've wanted to play it for a long time, and I'm glad I'm having the chance at the moment.

First the good.

HOW the upgrades in this game work are really satisfying. In an RPG you just buy armor, it increases your defense, and you directly SEE that happen in battles. Here, you upgrade your mid-fuselage armor. Did it help? It depends:

- Is that actually an area that receives a lot of damage?
- What's your GOAL with that upgrade? Was your goal to avoid your plane breaking in two, or to protect the cabin crew?
- Does it fit your playstyle? E.g., do you have things set up for someone to grab the extinguisher right next to them and hop out to fix a burning engine quickly, or use the 'emergency dive' to take care of it, and therefore don't see it to be much of a big deal? Or are you mentally burdened in battle and like the fire extinguisher safety system?

Equipment ALSO doesn't tend to help concretely like in an RPG because I found that this is a game that really focuses in on statistics. E.g., you end up min-maxing the _regions_ of the plane best adapted to armor and ignoring the rest. Not because you don't need to, but because _on the margin_ you don't need to. Likewise for flak vests. You give them to gunners and almost nobody else. Not because they don't need it either, but because _on the margin_ they need it a lot more.

There's a lot of 'consequences of consequences' that happens. E.g., you forget to upgrade the hydraulics, so that ends up failing in battle, so you have to repair it while you can't shoot, so a lot of men go under so you run out of first aid kits so when the next wave hits you're barely prepared. BY THAT LATE IN THE BATTLE YOU FORGET THE ORIGINAL CAUSE. You often end up upgrading things that are completely unnecessary and it's difficult to notice that. I've found it interesting to dissect "What the fuck happened there" after the fact because of this.

There's a lot of 'synergistic' effects. This is like the previous point, but in a positive spiral. And likewise, it's REALLY hard to see that thing are suddenly getting way easier because your pilot can do a corkscrew and those extra few seconds of leeway have been enough. But when you can sit down and analyze what you're doing and realize that that's what's happening, it's amazing.

This is a game that feels like it really drives home the importance of the little detaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The last time I upgraded my GPU I bought a GTX 1070. All these years later and I still feel like I don't need to upgrade anytime soon, runs everything I play perfectly… not that I give a shit about the latest AAA titles anyway.

20XX wasn't worth the upgrade to me, and 30XX is probably the last graphics card you'll ever need so congrats if you got one for a fair price.

Thread for games you managed to finish and your thoughts on it.


So I finished Amnesia Dark Descent yesterday. Horror is a favorite genre of mine in any media and this is a game I wanted to play for a long, long time now but several reasons, from depression to not giving a shit about games anymore, kept getting in the way. This is a spoiler free review of it.

It's the mid 1800s and you play as Daniel, a guy who went on an expedition in Africa and found something in a forgotten, ancient catacomb. The object is 'cursed' though, which prompts him to write letters to geologists, historians and anyone in Europe for help. A baron named Alexander writes back saying he can help and Daniel should go to his castle in Germany at once. You spend the entire game exploring the castle, its secrets, finding notes and letters that reveal more about the curse, the object, yourself and everything else. That's the premise of the whole thing.

As far as the story goes, it has a few nice ideas here and there but overall it's nothing too new or exciting. Here's where the magic of this game happens however. Everything this game does, it does it in an very brief, nice length measure, both with its story as well as with its gameplay. The story is fairly simple and straight forward, though you have to reach the end to realize that. It's entertaining because they didn't bloat it with any unnecessary fluff nor stretch it to pretend there's more than it actually is.

The gameplay is pretty much exploration/stealth on one side and puzzles on the other. Now, it's been a year since I played a game and I kinda had forgotten already how much video game logic there is in video games. Amnesia is particularly chock-full with video game logic. For example, during the entire game you need to keep close to light sources to keep your sanity up, but you can't just grab one of the thousands of candles or torches you find along the way, you need to use a lamp that burns oil extremely fast or keep lighting the candles with tinderboxes. Moving torches or candles is IMPOSSIBLE. Sometimes you'll need an object to solve puzzles, like using a hammer for example, but you can't use one of the several hammers you find lying around, or a rock for that matter, you need that one specific hammer you find in some other part of the map. You can't just use any iron bar, it has to be the 'right' iron bar. You can't just use any of the several jars or glasses on the floor, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

TR3 definitely needs "infinite saves" like TR2 had. It's honestly a bullshit and cheap game in lots of places.

>Is it true these three are like the only good ones?

Not true, no. Tomb Raider 4/Last Revelation is good also. I haven't played 5 or 6 yet so can't comment on those. Anniversary has mixed opinions. I liked it quite a bit when I played but that was like 15 years ago and I'm not sure if I'd still feel the same on repeat. It's a remake of TR1 if you're not aware of it. It's 100x better than the god awful "reboots" they did at least.

Forklift Load

I 100% it in one extended sit down. So not exactly long, though not easy ether. Was a indie game made by one dude. Overally pretty rough around the edges. Like on a techical level there were a lot of gliches and bugs.
All that said something about the whole experence was simply enchanting to me. It may be flawed but it is most certainly a work of art.

Story was interesting though a bit on the predicable side, and also mainly told though notes. I won't give it away but lets just say fellow wizards, especially NEETs would find it unintentionally funny.

I liked it quite a bit, though I am not sure it is for everybody. If it's on sell or whatever and you want something really different, and you don't mind indie jank, then you might check it out. Maybe you will like it too.
